4-months pregnant woman involved in a vehicular accident suffers head trauma

Setting : Present time
Googled : amnesia, amnesia due to head trauma, head trauma, retrograde amnesia

In my story, the character loses memories of the past 2 years of her life and forgets certain people, but not her family and best friend. I've already established that her baby would be okay.

1. How badly would she had to have hit her head for this to happen? Would she also be in a coma as a result?

2. What other complications would she experience, assuming that the real major damage she sustained was to her head?

3. What kind of therapy and treatment would she have to undergo to regain some, if not all, of her memories? Is it really possible for her to remember the people she forgot if she interacts with them?

4. What would be the long-term effects of her amnesia assuming that she manages to regain her memories?
